What If? A must see "tribute" to our current team and ownership...
The Cleveland Indians organization has further proved to be an employer of choice after the Dolans recently told their fans as well as the baseball world that the VP, GM, and team manager's jobs were all safe.
That is the kind of job security we all seek, zero accountability to performance.
Case in point, GM Chris Antonetti was quoted as telling the media yesterday that the problem with the Cleveland Indians is that they have given up far too many runs and haven't scored enough. Chris, be forewarned next time that you are giving away the secret to baseball success that you really should have kept to yourself. When you work long and hard to work out that winning formula, putting it out there for just any team to copy is like, well, asking for your current fortunes to continue. Let's not give the teams residing at the bottom of their divisions any advantage over us with such a profound blueprint to success.
Asked if resigning Grady Sizemore to a $5M contract was a mistake, Chris answered, "We have a plan in place for him." But Chris, can you be sure that Grady's surgically repaired knees can withstand the constant trauma of pounding the steps at Progressive Field hawking cold beer in the stands?
While the ownership of this team is not held in high, no make that any regard with me, the Cleveland Indians will always be my team.
It's just that this year...I miss baseball way too early.
